Orange Nut Muffins

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup walnuts
1 medium sized orange
1 cup sugar

Cream together the butter and 1 cup sugar. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Alternate adding dry ingredients and sour cream to the butter and sugar mixture. Mix in the orange rind, raisings and nuts. Batter will be stiff. Pour batter into muffin tins, fill almost full. Bake at 375 degrees 12-15 minutes. Watch carefully as they burn quickly.

Squeeze the orange to make 1/2 cup juice. Combine with the 1 cup sugar. After the muffins come out, drizzle the orange juice mixture over the muffins.
